Double-dip of Spider-Man news concerning a new female and an old female in the flicks. That doesn’t sound…right? Anyways. Yeah. Here we go.
I don’t give a fuck. My shitty puns are your bowel movements are my small moments of job. Marc Webb has been confirmed to direct the sequel to this summer’s quiet little superhero flick, and that’s all good to me. While I don’t have a particular love the vehicle, it had a lot of HEAHHHT and Emma Stone. People came down on it with hammers and claws, but they were just bitter assholes rightfully annoyed at how quickly the thing had been rebooted. Sure, the plot was a fudgy diaper. The plot for Avengers was too, and that didn’t stop people from throwing rope all over that film.
I dug Marc Webb’s riff on Spider-Man, even if the storyline was a cavalcade of mess, wrapped in an entirely gutted plot point. I’d love to see the dude return, and it turns out so would Sony. Shit is just a bit complicated.
Ain’t it always?
Would you be shocked if you found out that a comic book franchise is aiming to be a trilogy? I hope not.
[As always, spoiler-free and barebones on plot description. If you want the third act twists spelled out for you, please visit Roger Ebert's site.]
But seriously: this film is worth admission alone because this time, they hired a fucking casting director. Gone is the triumvirate of shit that Tobey, Kirsten and Franco brought to the table.
Director Marc Webb gone and killed it. You will fall in love with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in this film. They’re just glowing with chemistry and love and presence. Garfield takes a half hour or so to get there, but Stone is just a magnet for attention in every scene, and never in a presumptuous or overbearing way. They work, and they work very well as the leads in this re-take on Spider-Man’s origin.
I ain’t excited for Spider-Man but I do enjoy Andrew Garfield. And Emma Stone? Goodness me, yes. Here is a clip of the two of them belting out some nonsensical jam about the Spider-Parker with an adorableness that I suspect won’t be found in the film. Haters gon’ hate. I’m a hater.
From what I can tell, the majority of the new footage in this four-minute preview of Amazing Spider-Man comes at the beginning. Unfortunately what could be a pretty righteous moment is marred by vomit-worthy dubstep and dollar store special effects.
What do you think? Check it out and let me know.
New Amazing Spider-Man trailer, but I’m having a hard time caring. Imma be in Avengers Heaven in little over three hours.
Up, up, and away web!
Paul Feig isn’t just the dude who wrote Bridesmaids. Okay! Shit. Everyone fucking forgets. He’s also the mind behind Freaks and Geeks, and at least one scene in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man will feature his penchant for interpersonal awkwardness.
Yeah, The Lizard is the antagonist in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man, no I don’t really give a shit. There’s new promo art that provided a look at said baddie, and I am equally unimpressed with this reveal.
Hit the jump for a peek.
